Successful PhD Defense of Pascal Neis

On Tuesday, 17th of June, our former group member Pascal Neis successfully defended his PhD thesis! The subject of his PhD was about investigating the quality of OpenStreetMap contributions. Pascal’s PhD comprises eight journal papers. In addition he also published many conference contributions. Furthermore, he developed the first version of OpenRouteService (ORS), which was the first nation-wide route planning tool for car, bike and pedestrian completely based on Volunteered Geographic Information (OSM).

The whole GIScience team would like to thank Pascal for his valuable work in recent years! Furthermore, we all wish him the best for his future! Congratulations for your successful dissertation and all the best for the future!
